Kate Winslet has said what Titanic fans wish for every time they watch the epic romantic disaster film. She has admitted that the film's lead character Rose, played by her, could have saved Jack, her love interest played by Leonardo DiCaprio.
The 40-year old British actress appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! talk show, broadcast on ABC on Monday (1 February). When asked by the host if Rose let Jack die, Winslet begged not to disagree.
"I agree," Winslet said of the 1997 flick's tragic scene in which Rose lay on a wooden panel floating in the ocean while Jack froze to death clinging on to the panel and holding her hands. "I think he could have actually fit on that bit of door," she added.
Even though the sequence clearly shows that the wooden chunk from the sinking Titanic was not buoyant enough to bear weights of both Rose and Jack, fans have long been disappointed.
The Steve Jobs actress went on to talk about spending time with her Titanic co-star at various award ceremonies recently. "People are always so excited to see Leo and myself in the same space... that's so lovely," she said. "It's been [almost] 20 years [since Titanic] and people still get such a kick out of it. It's really quite endearing"
Kate Winslet, who has tipped DiCaprio to win best actor award for his role in The Revenant at this year's Oscars, said she would really want to win another Academy Award.
"I'm done saying it's great to be nominated. It is, it really is, but it's really great to win. I'm so shameless," says Winslet, who won best supporting actress award for her role in the Steve Jobs biopic at the Golden Globes 2016.
